Anthropogenic global warming a huge costly fraud!

6 Jun 11 - (Excerpts) - As I’ve said dozens of times in the past couple of decades in various columns including, of course, ‘Gems,’ I believe in CLIMATE CHANGES of the naturally occurring variety, but not anthropogenic global warming (AGW). It’s a massive fraud in my opinion, a LIE, pure and simple.

There is no peer-confirmed scientific research that establishes a cause-and-effect relationship between increased atmospheric carbon dioxide and higher (or lower) global temperatures. This is a clever deception put forth by those attempting to impose a centralized, worldwide socialistic form of government headed by an empowered United Nations.

This far-reaching global warming industry, already making huge profits at tax-payer expense, has been given credence by most governments, the news media, political interests, fear-gripped citizens of the planet and much of the scientific community.

Some of the key scientists in the AGW movement have falsified historical data to make it conform to their agenda, which is decidedly anti-American (Western), anti-democracy and anti-capitalism.

Their methodology is to completely ignore the climatological facts that, since 1998, we’ve been in a pronounced cooling trend on a global scale that has completely wiped-out the warming that occurred from 1981 through 1997 that followed directly on the chilly heels of a prolonged colder period that began during World War II.

The Earth’s climate, like the rest of the planets in our Solar System, changes constantly in a ‘natural response’ to both terrestrial and extraterrestrial influences. These include solar rays, the sun is the big weather-maker, cosmic rays, radiation from exploding stars in our galaxy (supernovas), the moon and numerous other factors.

There have been several rather epoch climate changes since before the time of Christ, which AGW alarmists conveniently seem to ignore in their falsified climate models, like the Roman Warm Period (250 B.C. to 450 A.D.), the Medieval Warm Period (900 A.D. to 1300 A.D.), the Little Ice Age (1350 A.D. to 1850 A.D.), and the recent slow-warming from the mid 1800s through 1997.

This warming of the planet during the 20th Century was a mere 1.3 degrees Fahrenheit and, as I stated previously, was completely wiped-out during the brief period from 1997-2011, especially after our ‘sun went silent’ in 2007.

Virtually the entire mid-latitude regions of both northern and southern hemispheres have had a series of very cold winters since 2007, as sunspot activity decreased to levels not seen since the ‘Maunder Minimum’ between 1645 and 1715, when frost fairs were celebrated on the frozen Thames River in London almost on an annual basis.

The years 2008 and 2009 experienced extremely low levels of sunspots. There were an amazing

266 (73 percent) days that were ‘sunspot-free’ in 2008 and 260 such days in 2009. Only recently, have sunspot numbers increased to more normal levels. This cycle of higher sunspots should peak in late 2012 and then ‘drop off a cliff,’ no pun intended.
